Weston Bend State Park is one of my favorite places in the world. My parents used to take me and my brothers there on weekends in the fall and spring when I was a little girl, and I always LOVED all the fall leaves. As much as I am an Arizona girl now, you can't beat the leaves changing in the fall on the edge of the Missouri River. That land is in my blood. So when my sister in law, Liz, wanted a fun and beautiful place to capture family photos last fall, of course I knew we HAD to go to Weston Bend. We caught the leaves juuuuuust in time, and I think these might be some of my favorite photos I have ever taken.
Can we all agree that Liz did an exceptional job coordinating outfits for her family for this shoot? Cuz.. yeah... they cleaned up real nice :-).
This next one is my favorite.
My other favorite :-).
My third favorite (this is my website, I get as many favorites as I want :-).
We then headed into the little town of Weston for lunch and were able to capture a few photos of just my nephews. These guys are cookey and I LOVE it!! Grayson is at the fun age (3) when posing for Tia Erin isn't the most fun, but playing with Tia Erin makes for some silly photos!
And Auryn. OMG, this kiddo!! If you ask him for a kiss he puts his hands on your cheeks and softly kisses your lips. It is the SWEETEST and I was so lucky to get him kissin' on his big brother (because these days are fleeting, people).
There's something special about photographing people that you love. I'm so glad that I got to capture this special time in my brother's family's life (before niece or nephew number three joins us in August!!!). Thanks you guys! Love you bunches!!
